Askham Bryan College annual Degree graduation ceremony held at York Minster for first time

Askham Bryan College held its annual graduation ceremony at York Minster for the first time since the College opened in 1948. The ceremony took place on Thursday, 26 September when 250 graduates received their Undergraduate Degrees for the successful completion of their studies. The College, renowned for its wide range of specialist land-based Higher and Further Education programmes across six campuses in the North, delivers Undergraduate and Postgraduate provision at its University Centre at the York campus.

Dr Tim Whitaker, Acting Chief Executive Officer and Principal, Askham Bryan College, said, “The opportunity to hold this year’s graduation ceremony at the revered York Minster in its spectacular setting made for quite a memorable event for all our graduates. We wish them every success and know they will endeavour to make great contributions to the communities they live and work.”

The graduation featured guest speaker David Wiseman, who is The Royal Foundation’s Head of Programmes: Supporting Those Who Serve. The former Army Captain, who is from Tadcaster, was injured in 2009 while serving the 2nd Battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment in Afghanistan. He has since played a critical role in launching the Invictus Games, even competing in three games and serving as UK Team Captain in 2016.
